What is Aerophobia?
The origins of the word Aerophobia is Greek, derived from the word ‘aero’ which translates to air or wind and the word 'phobia' which means dread or fear.
The fear of death (Thanatophobia) is another big phobia associated with Aerophobia and can be a big reason for its cause. So many films portray absolutely terrifying plane crashes and this builds in the mind of the Aerophobic. Even news reports of any plane crashes will contribute to the fear.
Sometimes a social phobia can be the cause of Aerophobia, as being seated on a plane requires one to sit very close to lots of other people.
Physical conditions can also contribute to one developing Aerophobia such as veritgo, sinus, issues and other nasal conditions, ear problems like Tinnitus, motion sickness, and stiff painful joints. These sort of problems are aggravated while in flight and can feed into the fear of being in extreme discomfort or pain while flying.
Someone might have had an actual traumatic experience while flying that has created a subconscious fear of all flying. Like all phobias, it can be learned from a parent or sibling as well.
Symptoms can include:
- Rapid heart rate
- Feeling of choking
- Trembling and/or sweating
- Nausea or other gastrointestinal distress
These symptoms could start manifesting as soon as the person arrives at the airport or even on the way to the airport. The very thought of even getting onto a plane can be completely overwhelming for the person with Aerophobia.

Why Should See The Phobia Guru For Treatment?
Hypnotherapy is so effective with phobias because it tackles the underlying trigger of the phobia within the subconscious. Once a person has access to their subconscious they can eliminate their conditioned response to the stimulus. So instead of treating just the symptoms, hypnotherapy can heal the source for a lasting result. The best part about hypnotherapy and phobias is that often it only takes one session to completely get over the phobia so you do not have to spend a lot of money on continual treatment. The NHS also promotes hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for phobias.
